DOCTOR WHO lands ABC iView fans
Friday night’s midnight debut of the new Doctor Who series on the catch up tv service ABC iView has proved a huge success, with more than 112,000 views over the weekend of the Australian premiere of the cult series online and a further 1,033,000 tuning in to the Sunday night screening on ABC1and a free-to-air share of 18.6%.
Doctor Who’s launch on ABC iView also resulted in the catch up tv service receiving its biggest boost to visitor numbers. In the week ending April 18, ABC iView recorded a total of 224,000 visitors, 540,000 visits and 2.8 million page views.
“The response we’ve had to the Doctor Who premiere makes it very clear that Australians want to watch television episodes on their computers and game consoles,” says Director of Television, Kim Dalton. “We’ll be looking to offer more special programming on iView and to that end, I’m delighted to announce that our most requested program, Spicks and Specks will be available on iView from this Wednesday night.”
The new series of Doctor Who stars Matt Smith (Party Animals) as the 11th Doctor and Karen Gillan as his companion Amy Pond. Bafta-winning writer Steven Moffat (Coupling, Jekyll) has replaced Russell T Davies as lead writer and executive producer.
In the special hour-long first episode, the Doctor has regenerated into a new man, but danger strikes before he can even recover. With the TARDIS wrecked, and the sonic screwdriver destroyed, the new Doctor has just 20 minutes to save the whole world – and only Amy Pond to help him.
The episode is available to watch in ABC iView until Sunday May 2.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.
The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.
My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
